With more than 30 years’ experience owning, maintaining and managing properties,  and a lifetime of loving and caring for our own and family’s pets, Bernie and I have the ideal skills necessary to be the guardians of your home and beloved pets. Be assured you can place your trust in us, and that trust will never be taken for granted.

We both love animals and have had pets from childhood and throughout our lives, including experience with small animals and big dogs such as German Shepherds and Greyhounds. Each one of them has given back many times over, the love and care bestowed on them.

Currently we are working as tutors for a local college and as such have current, enhanced DBS/CRB checks. We are not tied to college holidays and can be available anytime of the year.  We love to travel and explore new places, Bernie plays classical guitar, I’m a photography enthusiast, mainly to be found behind the camera; more recently I have rekindled a passion for drawing. We also enjoy cooking, reading, walking, including walks for charity (epic walking in Bernie’s case) and spending time at home.

For us house sitting is an ideal scenario.  We’re looking for a change of lifestyle in order to facilitate a gentler and healthier pace of life, where our hobbies and interests can be cultivated. We love to travel, to live and get to know people and other parts of the world. At the same time, we can provide a useful service. Whether you’re going on holiday to enjoy a well-deserved break or just need to be elsewhere, you can rely on us to step in and take the reins, secure in the knowledge that we will take care of your home and beloved companions, as you would yourself.  It would be an honour to be entrusted with the most precious things in your life.

We take pride in our own home. We have totally renovated it and several other properties, that we rent out and maintain to a high standard, using Bernie’s professional skills as a joiner and my expert DIY skills. We are fully aware of the need for good maintenance and swift action when dealing with any sort of problem that can arise with a property and are more than capable of dealing with it.  We love gardening and have had an allotment, growing our own fruit, vegetables and flowers.

Our experience caring for animals beside the usual feeding, walks, playing and cuddling, encompasses following vet’s instructions on medication; rehabilitating traumatised rescue dogs; handling nervous and anxious dogs; caring for Bob (greyhound) with a broken leg; and successfully nursing Ashe (Heinz 57) through a serious illness. Currently we have no pets. Ashe passed away in November, age 17.

In summary, we commit to everything we undertake to do and see it through to a successful conclusion.

We aim to be as flexible as possible, leaving room for manoeuvre if your plans change and you need to leave earlier or are delayed returning.  We understand that prompt replies and timely communication are important, Bernie and I will always acknowledge and try to accommodate any requests we receive.

We feel we would be ideal to care for your property, your possessions and beloved pets. If you feel we are right for you, please get in touch.
